Help support Marina through her recovery

On September 15, Marina and the two small children in her charge were watching the fish swimming in a Mount Pleasant neighbor's small pond, when a stolen car came speeding down the sidewalk and crushed Marina against the retaining wall as she protected the children.  She suffered multiple broken bones and needs several surgeries, but fortunately the doctors think she will be able to mostly recover in about six months.  Because Marina won't be able to work during that time, we want to join together with the other supportive family, friends and neighbors to raise money that she can use for her mortgage and other expenses.  Thank you for your support for a true local hero!
